Sweet and Sour Sauce Ingredients:
- 3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
- 4 Tablespoons organic maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon low-sodium tamari *
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne
- ¼ teaspoon ground fennel seeds
- ½ teaspoon cornstarch
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- Make the Sweet and Sour Sauce, place all the Sweet and Sour Sauce ingredients into a small saucepan, bring heat to a boil, whisking constantly until the mixture slightly thickens, lower to a simmer. Simmer for a few minutes, then remove from the heat and allow to sit until ready to use.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
- Place the Herb/Spice Ingredients in a small bowl, mix and set aside.
- Peel and cut the Russet potatoes into small half-inch cubes, then boil or steam them (we boiled them in a small saucepan covered with water, tiny sprinkle of sea salt, for about 10 minutes) until just until fork tender. Do not overcook the potatoes. Drain, then set aside to slightly cool.
- Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then slightly mash them. You should have a variety of chickpeas, some mashed, some lightly mashed, and some whole, set aside.
- In a large ceramic/enamel-lined large skillet, add the finely chopped red onion, grated sweet potato, and jalapeno pepper; sauté over medium heat until they begin to soften, approximately 7 to 9 minutes. Add a tablespoon or so of water if the veggies start to stick and/or to prevent burning.
- Add the minced garlic and ginger and sauté for 30 seconds, add the Herb/Spice Mix and sauté to release their fragrance, about one minute. Then add the boiled/steamed cubed potatoes, mashed chickpeas and the peas. Gently stir, flip and fold the mixture until everything is heated through, about 3 to 4 minutes.
- Test the flavors, add more spices, if necessary, to achieve the level of flavor you desire. Slightly mash the mixture, but make sure you still have some texture remaining. In other words, do not create mashed potatoes.
- Take a tortilla and lay it flat, place about 1/3 cup of the potato/bean mixture on one end and roll it up into a log. Place it on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat and continue until you have used up all the mixture.
- Place in a preheated 375 F oven and bake for 15 minutes. Then switch to high-broil for a few minutes to lightly brown the samosas. Watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
- Serve immediately with Sweet & Sour Sauce.
